Be Prepared And Dressed For Dawn - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is best to rise and early.
Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
And the first to be moving on,
From a yesterday...
That has gone.

Drop all thoughts to think remaining.
With them known in your heart,
What can not be changed.
Stop revisiting a canvas painted.
Even if the temptation remains,
To remove the doing of unwanted stains.

Focus more on effective steps,
Taken...
To do your best.
Take that ball in a game to be played.
Perfect it.
With points to get.

Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
And move,
With corrected steps.
Know in your heart to leave what's gone.
With fresh steps,
Done at your best.

Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
With fresh steps,
Done at your best.
Forget what had been going on.
To make,
Your best steps yet.

Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
To meet and greet each morning.
Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
With steps made to move one.

You can,
Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
To meet and greet each morning.
You can,
Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
If this is what you wish,
For a better life to get.

Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
To meet and greet each morning.
You can,
Be prepared and dressed for dawn.
To get that what is wished.

If it's love!
Feel it to have it to get it.
Or happiness.
Know it to have it to get.
You can't have what is wanted,
If the feeling does not exist.
